Despite laws mandating auto insurance, many drivers choose to risk driving without adequate coverage.

If you were hurt or have experienced the death of a family member in an auto accident caused by an underinsured or uninsured driver, recovering the financial compensation you need to cope with injuries can be especially difficult. The Charleston auto accident lawyers at Jim Leach, L.C., have extensive experience helping accident victims pursue the monetary peace of mind they need to cope with medical expenses and other damages.

In West Virginia, motorists are required to carry at least $20,000 in uninsured motorist coverage. Many insurance providers also offer elective underinsured motorist coverage.

However, depending on your injuries, even this additional coverage may not be adequate for your needs. This is why it is important to work with an experienced car accident attorney if you’re involved in a collision with an uninsured or underinsured driver.

Our experienced Charleston attorneys can evaluate your unique circumstances, answer your car accident questions, advise you on your legal options, and help you pursue fair compensation through every avenue available.

If you were hurt or a family member was killed in an auto accident caused by a careless driver, please contact Jim Leach, L.C., by calling (304) 865-8530 today!
